Bee seed bomb

Bees are one of the most important creatures on our planet. We rely on them to pollinate about one-third of the flowers that develop into the food we eat.

These Bee Seed Bombs use natural clay to protect flower seeds from insects and birds. Throw them around your garden, and when conditions are right, the bomb will break down and the seeds will grow into plants that bees love.
